Silver 350 or 420's anyone? READ THIS!!fredthebiker

I am curious if anyone would be interested in a silver 350 rim or a silver 420 rim?

I can and have removed the black anodizing on these rim succesfully where it doesn't harm the rim. I am just curious if people would be interested in them and if so, how much they would pay for a pair built up.

Or, if anyone has questions, please leave them or me.

If anyone is interested in NOT voiding their warranty, I would not follow FredtheBiker's directions.

An excerpt from American Classic's warranty - see www.amclassic.com/Warranty.html

------

This warranty does not cover the following:

1. American Classic products that have been modified, neglected or poorly maintained, used in competition or for commercial purposes, misused or abused or involved in accidents.
2. Damage occurring during shipment of the products (such claims must be presented directly to the carrier).
3. Damage to products resulting from improper assembly or repair.
4. Damage resulting from causes other than defects in materials and workmanship, including but not limited to lack of technical skill, competence, or experience of the user.
5. Damage or deterioration to the surface finish, aesthetics or appearance of the product.

Good advice FredtheBiker...

To void the waranty if you have EVER raced on your American Classics. Isn't racing the whole reason people buy light/aero wheels?
Oh yeah- taking off the anodizing does not sound like a good idea.

Lampshade, I think most companies have that policy? Anyway, I quoted that excerpt from their website - not my creation. My point was about the removal of anodizing from the rims... a STUPID idea, unless you enjoy voiding warranties... you got my point of course :)
